KEEDYSVILLE - As the nation turned against war, a one-time war protester said she took a stand. Judy Warner said she became a conservative in 1967 as opposition to the Vietnam War grew. Though she originally protested that war, Warner, who is married to a former prisoner of war, said she has learned from the mistakes of the past. This time, she and a friend, Ann Corcoran, will converge on Washington, D.C., to show support for the country's military involvement. "It's that we're there now, and whatever you think about how we got there, we're there now, and we have to finish it," said Warner, who is worried that leaving Iraq now would be "disastrous.

Reese trivializes circumstance of war To the editor: Normally I don't even read Charley Reese's column. It's almost always the same ultra-left-wing propaganda, and hardly worth the time to read. But let's take a look at one of his recent articles more closely. I would rewrite the first paragraph because it really states the obvious. The concepts we all, including our elected government, must struggle with is the balance between individual rights and freedoms, and the good of the people, which are not the same thing necessarily.

To the editor: President Bush, Vice President Cheney and the administration are now being much criticized for our Iraq policy. Since the war on terror there has dragged on for two and half years, there are those who think we have been in Iraq long enough, fighting a war that seems to have no shape, and want us to get out and let the chips fall where they may. The words have changed but the tune is the same one that was played in the...

"These people are upset about their animals being poisoned, but if they would start keeping their animals inside and keeping them quiet and on a leash, maybe this wouldn't happen. " "I just wanted to tell the people who stopped by my yard sale and just walked off with several things, like my bow and arrow, thanks a lot. You didn't even pay for it. Also, I saw the lady take the basket, too. Thanks a bunch. " "I am sitting here reading Mail Call and someone said yield means proceed with caution, not to stop.

andrews@herald-mail.com There was no equivocation when Vietnam War veteran Joe Morgan was asked if he supports the U.S. war against Iraq. "One hundred percent," said Morgan, 56, who served nearly 21/2 years in Vietnam with the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division. "Because I feel that when you have animals like Hussein running countries, killing people, destroying lives, destroying the economy, not giving any concern or respect to their own people - people like that have to be eliminated.

Editor's note: This is one in a series of occasional stories focusing on families of members of the military serving in the war against Iraq. scottb@herald-mail.com While their son, U.S. Air Force 1st Lt. Nathan McClure, 25, probably is involved in the war on Iraq, J. Wallace and Barbara McClure of Hagerstown said they are not as worried as families of other soldiers because he is less likely than ground troops to come into harm's way. McClure is a 1995 graduate of North Hagerstown High School and a 1999 graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy.

War. That one word speaks volumes. But we must be careful what we let it say, and do, to us as individuals and as a country. It should not conjure up images of John Wayne or Sylvester Stallone, because war isn't glamorous. People on both sides die. Some are maimed for life, physically or psychologically, in ways that victory on the battlefield can't heal. It must not be allowed to prompt those who oppose the war to take it out on the brave troops who are doing our fighting for us. That mistake made during the Vietnam War must never be repeated.
